Katie Fforde’s new book is out. She has even won an award.
I have read all of Ms Fforde’s novels (like this one or this one) – they’re a light, fun, easy read, but still well-written. This one, to my mind, seems a return to her best form. My copy arrived on Friday and I finished it on Sunday (perfect lazy Sunday reading).
Gina and Sally Makepiece have inherited a stall in the French House – an antiques centre nestled in the heart of the English countryside.
Gina is determined to drag the French House and its grumpy owner into the twenty-first century. Bearing all the attributes of a modern-day Mr Rochester, Matthew Ballinger is less than happy with the whirlwind that has arrived on his doorstep.
The last thing either of them want is to fall in love.
But will a trip to France change their minds?
If you like romance novels (without graphic sex scenes), then this novel is for you.
